Has your best friend ever asked to wear your sunglasses? Sparky may not be able to articulate his needs in English, but that doesn’t mean you can’t protect his peepers from sun and flying debris. That’s right, the time has finally come where our canine companions can enjoy some of the same comforts we humans have enjoyed for generations.
Jackson, CA-based Doggles has truly revolutionized the idea of eye protection for pets. In fact, Doggles glasses were a vital piece of protective gear used by search & rescue dogs after the World Trade Center tragedy. They offer nearly 100% UV protection, reduced glare, and shielding against damaging light. They’re used to protect against wind, dirt, and bugs while riding in the back of pick-ups, on motorcycles, and in sidecars. Doggles have even been used as post-surgical eye protection on numerous convalescent canines across the country.
Yet the most important question remains: Is Sparky as excited about Doggles as you are? I found it simply takes a little getting used to. Doggles are easy to use and come with simple instructions that provide the greatest opportunity for your dog to feel comfortable and confident (not to mention stylish). A variety of sizes, along with anti-fog lenses, foam-padded eyepieces, and adjustable straps help provide the highest quality and most comfortable protection available. After just a few applications, my dog came to accept the glasses readily, no objections or complaints whatsoever.
